I am fundraising for my Mom. She’s naturally a very private person. My mom got sick almost ten years ago with a rare autoimmune disease. She has been strong during many exploratory surgery’s. In the face of losing her career to her health and losing control over her body. At 51 it deteriorated to that of someone thirty years her senior.
This year has hit hard for so many, for us this meant the sudden death of my step dad who was her best friend, long time partner and helped me care for her.
This week, she tripped and broke her hip. Laying alone until I found her and called 911. I want to say I can fix everything but this time I can not. At 34, trying to build a life and having two parents become federally disabled. I can admit I need help to care for her.
I want to give her the best possible chance to recover from emergency surgery and let her know she isn’t alone in the world. So I have decided to ask for help. All I can hope for this holiday season is to ease her suffering.
Medical expenses are going to be expensive, physiotherapist, therapy and prescription cost are all out of reach at the required level. Disability leaves people living well under the poverty line, often without certain medications that are required but not covered
This would be the miracle for me, to be able to take care of her.
I appreciate anyone who took the time to read part of my story.
